(no subject)

Preparing a late night dinner for my girlfriend as she heads home from a day-trip to Baltimore. I usually make my stir-fry with red, yellow, and/or green peppers, but sometimes my girlfriend prefers not to eat them, especially if she's been stressed out. There's no recipe here really, just something I made and took bad pictures of with my cell phone camera.

Here, the carrots...Collapse )

more on vegan yogurt

back on the vegan yogurt subject... i'm not sure if a vegan yogurt starter of any sort was found by anyone, so i was wondering if anyone has heard of rejuvelac. it is a homemade cultured drink made from sprouted grain:

you might be able to make soy yogurt from this... or i have also seen recipes for almond and other nut based yogurts and cheeses made with it (which might be pretty good for those who are tired of soy, like myself):

i have never made these, so i have no idea what they are like, but i have heard of the many benefits of rejuvelac. if you do more searching i'm sure you can find lots more info :)

chorizo and eggs

I bought a package of soy-rizo on a whim today and this is what I came up with. I've never had the real thing, but it turned out pretty good.

1 large potato
1/2 a green pepper
2-3 mushrooms (I used crimi)
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 package firm tofu (frozen/thawed)
soy-rizo
turmeric
hot sauce
salt
pepper
braggs

Chop all veggies. Mix thawed tofu, a little turmeric, braggs and pepper and set aside. Saute potato until it begins to soften and add the rest of the veggies and garlic. When veggies are almost done, add tofu and soy-rizo (i used about a 4th of a package). Season to taste with salt,pepper and hot sauce.

This was enough for two meals for me.. but I tend to eat small portions.
